After 6 protesters in West Tripura sustained bullet injuries today while taking part in the Northeast bandh called by NESO, rumours began to circulate on social media about the death of 5 people in the protest.
Hence in order to curb the spread of fake news and to maintain law and order, SMS messages of all mobile service providers as well as mobile internet/data services have been suspended for the next 48 hours.
The prohibition is also applicable to press messages.
The same was promulgated by Saradindu Chaudhuri, Additional Secretary to the Government of Tripura today.
